Laura Whitmore is expecting her first child with Iain Stirling

The baby is ‘coming early 2021’

Laura Whitmore and Iain Stirling have just announced they are expecting their first child together.

Laura posted a Guns ‘n’ Roses Sweet Child O Mine babygrow on Instagram, saying the baby is “coming early 2021”.

Yesterday, the Daily Mail reported the couple got “secretly married” in a ceremony in Dublin last month. Laura and Iain reportedly first met back in 2016 and began dating a year later.

Laura captioned her Instagram post announcing the news of their baby: “So I’ve always tried to be protective over the personal side of my life. A lot of things are just for me and my loved ones and we’ve chosen not to share publicly.

“However I want to now share good news as it’s our news to share – and I’m gonna be honest it’s starting to look like my lockdown beer belly is out of control. Iain and I are expecting a baby early 2021.”

Laura went on: “It’s been hard to keep such happy news quiet.

“Especially the times when I’ve had to run out of live radio to get sick in a bin or my penchant for a bowl of mashed potato in the morning. I wasn’t hungover like everyone thought. In fact I was completely sober filming the entire series of Celeb Juice, which is quite the accolade!

“We’d appreciate our privacy respected but just wanted to spread some love and a reminder of the beauty of life.”

Iain also posted an Instagram of his games consoles, with a post-it note stuck on them saying “I will miss you xxx”. He captioned it: “Sorry to my old babies but there is a new baby coming early 2021.”
